Mobility Scooters are the most desired type of motorized wheelchair and you may be in the market for mobility scooters for sale. Mobility Scooters are primarily designed for people that still have mobility but have a hard time walking a long way. A mobility scooter user might not only have trouble walking but also may have a hard time walking up and down hills or slopes.
Mobility scooters are different than power wheelchairs in the following aspects:
1) Motion is controlled by thumb levers.
2) Steering is controlled by a tiller, much like a bicycle handlebar.
3) The seats on many mobility scooters can rotate.
4) Scooters use a base board for your feet instead of footrests.
5) Mobility scooters are less expensive than “Electric Wheelchairs”
Benefits of Mobility Scooters are they are less expensive than electric wheelchairs; steer with a tiller that works just like a bike handlebar. They are lighter than electric wheelchairs and can be handled and loaded much easier. They can also be taken apart if needed for easier transportation. They can be obtained in foldable, three and four wheel models and are available with front or rear wheel drive.
Foldable models are ideal for the person that likes to travel. They are many times called “travel scooters” and can be unassembled into smaller and less heavy parts for easier loading into a vehicle.
Three wheel scooters offer great maneuverability and are designed for both indoor and outdoor use while four wheel scooters are designed for the greatest stability, faster speeds, and the best performance outdoors. The four wheel models have a wider turning radius than the three wheel models so if you are planning to use it mainly indoors, a three wheel model might be best for you.
